Wdget Conrtrol Plugin for a list format left & right side

Postby sharonv » Wed Jan 14, 2015 2:23 pm

Marcus I'm following along on your https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-7Tvspd124o widget control demo for wordpress video
and I'm wondering which part of it to use for a list format of keywords one list on right side of page and 1 on the left side -
for cover front page and when your doing front cover page is that considered page 1?,

Hi Sharon, no the home page is not page number 1. To see the page number for your home page, hover your mouse over the EDIT and look down at the bottom left of your screen. There you will see the URL. Look for the "post=" and the number following it is the real page number for your home page. This is the number you will use in Widget Control.

1 - I'm a little confused what you mean by opt-in. Are you saying you want 10 opt-in forms on you page with 5 on the left and 5 on the right. An Opt-in is a form for your mailing list. Are you planing on having 10 separate mailing lists on your site?

Or are you referring to opt-ins as bullet option list as you see in marcus Opt-in form.

Example:
Buy This Fantastic Chevy
Three Great features.
* Blue rough
* Leather Bucket Sets
* Chrome Rims
Enter Your Name

----------------
enter Your Email

----------------
Summit


2 - As for the 3 columns webpage, you would set that up in Artisteer and save it as a three column template. Or go to wordpress.org and search for a 3 column theme. I have never played with a 3 column webpage (site) so I don't know how the widget areas (sidebars) are set up. But would assume it would be similar to a two column site where you drag and drop the widget where you want it.

Comment: Are you in Marcus Five Finger Mastermind skype group (FFM skype group)? If so what is your skype username? It would be easier to work with you on Skype chat.

i noticed it moved my words right beside the left colum
so i will separate the words so wp won't move my words beside the first list: ill just put dots........................separating my colums:

jam.....................................................2nd column
bread..................................................2nd column
of course in the widget control plugin i won't need to put the .....

Hi Sharon, I'm a little confused, you keep talking about a 3 column website, but your website looks to be only a 2 column site. Also you keep referring to a list you want on your site. Is there any reason why you want to use Widget Control? A "text box" widget would be easier to work with, I believe, in your case.

Anyway I put together a video that covers 1, 2 and 3 column web pages and finish with working with widgets for 3 columns. I hope this video is what you where asking about.

Also you should get into Marcus Five Figure Mastermind Skype Group. In that group you will have access to many guys that can help you in a very timely manner - usually within hours and certainly in a day.

Hi Jim, and yes i am referring to basically a bullet list with 2 lists one on the right side and one on the left side on all of my pages EX) http://www.widgetcontrol.com/
-i thought i would have to use widget control because thats what Marcus said to use, but i guess if one is easier than the other i probably would opt for your suggestion.Does your suggestion of the other plugin is it free?

About the skype when you try getting it do you have to deposit money in it right away. Im asking because i never deposited any money right away maybe thats why i couldn't figure out how to get that working, i guess i could try again.

Everyone seems to get Skype so easily but ive never been able to get it. - ( could the problem be that i didn't deposit any money up front?)

Skype is FREE. Their is a paid version but that is business that have large group conferences. But you are not concerned about that, so again it is FREE for us.

To get Skype, just go to Goolge and search for "Skype". after you have chosen a Skype username, you can contact me on my skype at jimburrow2 and we can get you in Marcus Five Figure Mastermind (FFM) skype group.

Jim, is there any real benefit to using these widgets, as i can't make any head way with this.

I just want to make a list on left side of my page and the right side of my page can i just do that in the section where you can put in a paragraph area, not really sure what its called but is big enough area to put an article. I find these widgets a real headache and very complicated.

Is there really any benefit to using the widgets really?

Thanks Jim.

The primary widget area for a three column site is in the left margin. and the secondary is in the right margin. As for the widgets, there is no advantage right now for what you are trying to do. Once you get on skype (it's free) we can share screens. which mains I can share my screen so you can see it on your screen or you can share your screen so that I can see your screen on my computer and walk you around on your site.
